ST. PETERSBURG - The Studio@620 is known for representing all populations in the community and during May plans to place an extra emphasis on women in the arts with presentations of two new productions and a roundtable discussion centering on the creative process and patrons who support it taken from a female perspective.

Two new plays by local women playwrights

“Red as in Tooth and Claw” is the latest work by Alice Ferrulo, performance artist, dancer and founder of Black Horse Theatre. This multi-media performance is centered around the journey of Elizabeth Jeanine Christina Bartholomew, a troubled soul, who joins all of humanity in the struggle to stay afloat after having been stricken with love, politics and betrayal.

The play will be presented Thursday through Sunday, May 22-25. Show times are Thursday through Saturday at 7 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. All seats are $10.

The Studio@620 also presents a new theatrical work written and performed by local actor Roxanne Fay called "Upon This Rock."

"Upon This Rock" is a first person narrative of the life of Mary Magdalene and her journey as a follower of the man called Jesus of Nazareth. Based in the author’s study of both historical and religious sources, the play travels outside the boundaries of the simple sketch offered in the New Testament and introduces a woman of substance and the subversive path that she ultimately chose.

Performances are scheduled for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday May 29-31, at 7 p.m. with a matinee performance on Sunday, June 1, at 3 p.m. Admission is $20 and $15 for students and seniors.

A creative discussion

On Monday May 26, at 7 p.m., the Studio@620 explores the inner workings of the creative process from producing work to purchasing it.

“Women in the Creative Arts: Art, Performance, Practice, and Patrons” is a roundtable discussion moderated by Nadine Smith, CEO of Equality Florida. Those in attendance will gain insight and opinion from a variety of artists, actors, and patrons, who all happen to be female.

Participants will include Roxanne Fay, actor and playwright; Alice Ferrulo, performance artist, dancer and founder of Dark Horse Theatre; Bonnie Agan, actor; Carol Dameron, artist; Andrea Pawlisz, artist; Diane Bailey Norton, attorney and arts patron; Sylvia Rusche, insurance agent, promoter and arts patron; and Dr. Karen Monroe, family physician and arts patron.

Refreshments will be served. Admission is free and open to the public. Reservations requested.

The Studio@620 is a nonprofit arts venue located at 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg.
